Emini-Watch.com is a website dedicated to Emini trading and my name is Barry Taylor. I’m not a trading Guru and I haven’t discovered the Holy Grail. I’m just a regular guy who makes a living trading Emini futures and this website shows what works for me.
To be honest this website has become a personal obsession – I’ve been posting videos, articles, charts and more virtually every day since 2006. And that activity – more than anything else – has transformed my trading to where I now trade full-time for a living.
I started trading stocks in 1995
I started trading stocks in 1995, then moved on to small caps, options, warrants, commodities, forex, etc. – a progression you might be familiar with too. And along the way I did OK – had some big wins, had some big losses – but never gave up. I just love trading and watching markets.
Along the way I learned a few things:
- Traditional technical analysis techniques are at best 50:50 propositions – MACD, Fibonacci or Candlestick patterns alone won’t do.
- Price alone cannot be used to predict price – you need to factor in demand & supply volume, the real drivers of price.
- Markets turn with a repeatable pattern – climactic volume, price exhaustion & Professional activity then less volume, price testing & Amateur mistakes.
- Less is more – use the minimum number of simple indicators and avoid over-optimization at all costs.
- Lastly, you need to work hard at trading – otherwise you will fail. Sorry.
By 2004 I was focussed exclusively on the Emini
It wasn’t until I started trading Emini futures that I really started to find my groove. By 2004 I was focussed exclusively on trading the Emini – first purely systematically, then discretionary swing trading and finally discretionary day trading. By 2009 I was able to give up my day job (freelance consultant) and trade full-time for a living.
IMHO the Emini is the perfect trading vehicle: Why trade Emini futures
I trade using 3 non-correlated indicators, the ‘Better’ indicators – one measures Price, another buying/selling Volume and the third Average Trade Size. The combination of these 3 indicators on 3 different time frame charts helps me determine the trend and identify trade entries and exits. Some have called it a 3-dimensional approach to trading.
